Were You or a Family Member Injured on Another’s Property? Call Our Houston Injury Lawyers to Discuss Your Options.
If you are injured because of the negligence of a property owner, you may be eligible to file a premises liability lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries and damages. These cases can be complicated, making it important to enlist the right attorney to help you build a strong case. At the Houston law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, our attorneys handle a wide range of these cases.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
If you don’t know whether you have a case after being injured on another’s property, our attorneys can advise you. If we are able to prove that the other party’s negligence caused your injuries, you may have a successful case. We handle cases involving issues such as:
- Swimming pool accidents
- Negligent supervision in day care establishments
- Food poisoning in restaurants and other commercial venues
- Stairway accidents because of weak or missing railings, risers and steps
- Injuries resulting from negligent security
- Slip-and-falls in businesses
- Animal attacks
Building codes and other laws exist to protect the public when visiting others’ property. One way of proving that a property owner was negligent is to show that he or she failed to comply with building codes and laws.
Challenges of Cases Involving Dangerous Property Conditions
Even if a property owner violated the law, it does not mean he or she was negligent and, thus, liable for your injuries. It often requires an extensive investigation into the conditions that led to your accident and injury to demonstrate negligence on the part of the party controlling the premises. In addition to requiring investigation, premises liability cases usually must be filed within a certain time limit, usually up to two years after the injury occurred. Another complication is bringing a lawsuit against a public entity, such as a school, a city or county government or even a highway authority. When the defendant is a public entity, the rules are different and more complicated. It is important that the attorney you hire for your premises liability case has the experience and resources to handle challenges such as these.
